I swapped the knobbly tyres for road slicks and put the full guards back on the ‘cross bike earlier this week so that I can ride in all weathers and stay relatively dry and comfortable for the remainder of the winter. Having said that, last night’s howling wind made last night’s ride less than comfy 😦
I know it doesn’t look very cool (but tights, overshoes and an orange jacket don’t look cool either) but it makes me want to ride further so that’s officially A Good Thing. It’ll stay like this until early summer now.
That’s like putting a bobble hat on Darth Vader.
